Mission Statement

This Associate of Arts degree in Health Science is designed for students who want to get a head start on pre-professional programs in the health sciences at other colleges and universities. Successful completion of the program, with careful selection of electives and general education options, will prepare students for transfer to colleges and universities in nursing, pre-pharmacy, pre-veterinary, and pre-medicine.

Note:  Completion of the program does not guarantee successful transfer.  It is essential that pre-professional students maintain close and continuing contact with their Lindsey Wilson College advisor and the receiving college or university.
